NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Paducah Kentucky 
157 am CST Thursday Mar 5 2015 


Short term...(today through tonight) 
issued at 152 am CST Thursday Mar 5 2015 


Winter storm continues to produce heavy snow across southern 
Kentucky and the pennyrile...where up to a foot has fallen in 
some locations and at least a couple more inches look possible 
before it tapers off. Radar shows the back edge clearly and observation 
reveal dew point depressions sharply increasing where the snow 
tapers sharply from significant accumulating snow to light snow 
before it ends. Anticipate all this will come to a close in the 
next few hours and will retain the current expire time and cancel 
west to east as we see these trends unfold. 


Still forecasting below guidance lows in the lower single digits 
tonight as high pressure works in overhead and anchors across the 
Tennessee Valley by 12z Friday. As a result...winds will diminish...so 
the effective temperatures/wind chills near zero will be highlighted as 
such on the severe weather potential statement. Record lows look to be untouched unless it cools 
about 5f or more from our existing forecast lows. 


Long term...(saturday through wednesday) 
issued at 239 PM CST Wednesday Mar 4 2015 


Models show high pressure centered south of the pah forecast area 
through the weekend. Southwest winds along with some sunshine will 
begin a gradual warm up. Temperatures will reach the lower 40s 
Saturday, and the middle to upper 40s Sunday. The high will slowly 
move northeast, and this will overall keep our region in warm 
southerly flow into middle week. We will also continue to see quite a 
bit of sunshine. Temperatures will continue to moderate each day, 
with readings finally reaching near seasonal readings Monday and 
Monday night, and actually climbing above seasonal normals Tuesday 
and especially Wednesday. Wednesday highs could reach around 60 
degrees. 


&& 


Aviation... 
issued at 1137 PM CST Wednesday Mar 4 2015 


Conditions became rapidly VFR after the snow ended at kcgi and 
kevv...and figure that will be the case at kpah and kowb as well. 
Kept some IFR or lower snow for 3 hours at kpah...but figure it 
will be done by 06z at kowb...so did not leave any mention of snow 
there. North winds will continue to gust into the teens at 
times...mainly at kpah and kcgi overnight. Still concerned about 
lower MVFR ceilings re-developing late morning at kpah and kcgi. 
May see few to scattered at kowb and kevv. Otherwise winds should 
be dying off by the end of the day...and any leftover low clouds 
should be dissipating with sunset at the latest.
